Summer Subway Art

I'm so excited to announce that my first book, THE I HEART NAPTIME COOKBOOK: 100 easy and delicious recipes to make than less than an hour is now available for PRE-SALE!


Here’s a fun Subway Art my friend and I made for summer. We made it back with the 4th of July one, I just forgot to post it!
These are pretty easy to make. First get a 12×12 piece of plywood. Lowes or HD will cut it down for free. Then paint it your desired color. Looking back I probably would’ve done a little lighter color on the dots (so you could see the vinyl better)…but I still think it turned out cute!
If you have vinyl lay it on (my friend has a vinyl machine, but you could print this on a cricut if you have the software to hook it up to your computer)…or you could write words on your plaque…or trace.. many options!
Put it in a stand & enjoy the summer!!

    I am making this for my new beach bathroom and was wondering where you got the fonts for this? I love the “summer” font and the “sandals”. Awesome job, I hope mine looks as good as yours!
